Football Friday - Southwest Frito Pie

We are big college football fans around here, more specifically we are big SEC football fans around here and most specifically we are big South Carolina Gamecocks fans around here.  Our Saturday mornings will now be filled with Game Day on the TV and football watching all day long.  We love it. Like a lot.  So I decided to start a fun little Football Friday series for football season! First up is this delicious recipe that I found on Culinary Covers!

2 pounds lean ground beef
3 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
2 cups water
1 can (15-oz) pinto beans (drained and rinsed)
4 1/2 cups corn chips
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, monterey jack or colby jack would all work well)
3/4 cup chopped tomatoes
6 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 diced avocados
sour cream

In a deep pan or a pot brown the ground beef over medium heat. Drain off the grease. Add the chili powder, flour, salt and garlic powder then stir in.  Slowly add the water. Stir in the beans and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes while stirring occasion.  Divide the corn chips into 6 bowls. Top with the beef mixture, cheese and remaining toppings as desired.
